Medium to big off white head rests above a clearish honey amber golden colored medium bodied beer.

Aroma is sweet caramel malt with a light citrus added to it.

The slightly burnt and sweetish caramel malt is forefront in the taste with little grain and a tad bit of a citrus hops sneaking in there.

A light dry aftertaste with a hint of sweet caramel to it.

A- Fizzy, off-white one-inch head on a translucent medium-red colored beer. Average head retention and little lacing.

S- Smells sort of piney...bready, pale malts.

T- Subdued fruit hops. The malts take the front seat in this one. More bread, hint of caramel/cinnamon.

M- Medium mouthfeel, well carbonated.

D/O- Easy drankin' beer here. To kill a sick pack on a cool autumn night, well no one could argue with that. Very surprised I'm only the second review on this one. This brewery is HIGHLY underrated/unnoticed by the masses....not flashy but very solid brews.

Pours an orangey-amber with a white head. Aroma is bready, some slight toffee, a touch floralnand a little pine. Flavor is a nice full breadiness, some toffee, alittle sweet floral and some pine. A medium bodied, creamy, somewhat active mouthfeel. Overall, a great amber ale. Right up there with Odell’s Stone Barn and Levity for my favorite of the style. One of the very few ambers I want to drink more of. Great beer.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear amber with a nice pillowy off-white head. Head retention and lacing are excellent.

Aroma is piney hops along with a toffee/toasted maltiness. There is also a touch of spice in the aroma, maybe cinnamon, reminding me of some winter warmers.

The taste has some piny/earthy hops along with a slightly spicy maltiness that reminds me of a rye beer. There is some toasted malt too along with a respectable hop bitterness that remains somewhat restrained in line with the style.

Again I am impressed by Marble Brewery. Every beer I have tried has impressed me and I can't say enough about this brewery. They definitely fly under the radar but I am very thankful they distribute to TN. I think I heard that their head brewer is a graduate of UT Knoxville which could be the reason their beers are available here.

Pours a hazy amber color with a tight off-white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of toasted bread and caramel notes.

Tastes of a big malty base with smaller hop notes on the end. Malts lead off with toasted bread, caramel, and toffee. Toasted tones lend to a nuttiness. Some fruit comes through midway as well. The malt feels substantial, but is not particularly sweet. Hops add in the end with floral and earthy notes.

Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a malt based amber that I feel works well. Another good beer from Marble.

22oz Bottle brought back from New mexico by my lovely wife.
Pours a pretty medium, ale-like amber. Tawny brown. A good puff of head without a generous pour, lacing on the glass nicely.
Smells mostly of sweet, toasty malts, with a bit of floral, fruity esters in the background. Soft, placid hops.
Very smooth, easygoing flavor. Caramel malt easing into apple fruitiness and a gently hopped, slightly floral, balanced finish. There's a nice little understated artistry to this beer. The carbonation is mellow, supporting a medium body with unconcerned ease. The well-mannered carbonation and impeccable balance are my favorite aspects of this brew. Not heavy handed or angular like a lot of beers I've been drinking lately. There's nothing particularly noteworthy, but everything comes together seamlessly, with no rough edges. Just a well made session beer. I like it a lot, and would love another bottle. Reminds of some of the great British ESBs.
